EA Maturity Assessment

Through a qualitative and quantitative evaluation of your architecture and organization, Cutter's maturity assessment program provides a relative comparison of the organization to industry norms and identifies strengths and areas needing attention.


IT Strategic Planning

Cutter Consortium will help you put a strategic planning process and a strategic plan in place.


Architecture Review and Action Plan

The Architecture Review and Action Plan provides an in-depth evaluation of your enterprise's architecture. It takes an architectural approach to addressing specific questions and concerns that you may have. It is intended to clarify business, application, and technology discussions and help your organization make specific technology decisions.


Knowledge Management Assessments

Our Senior Consultants help you determine where and how to target your knowledge management efforts, and help you outline a program to measure those efforts.


Value Project Portfolio Management

Bob Benson

Every IT project should deliver business value. The challenge is that traditional project management and PMOs focus on "on time" and "on budget," not achievement of business value. Cutter's Value Project Portfolio Management (Value-PPM) approach ensures organizations achieve all three goals.


Negotiating Complex Deals

Sara Cullen

Steering complex deals requires fine-tuned negotiation skills — skills most IT executives are not trained in. But Cutter Senior Consultant Sara Cullen is. With a doctorate in contracts and the experience of assisting more than 140 deals, you could not put a better expert on your team than Sara Cullen.


Financial Management of Information Technology

Bob Benson

This engagement equips business executives, CIOs, IT executives, IT financial managers, and CFOs with the tools and processes they need to answer the following questions:


Metrics Program Development

Take advantage of the opportunity to take a more thorough look at how efficient and productive your software development efforts are ... and can be.


Strategy Meeting Facilitation

Cutter Senior Consultants and Fellows are experts at facilitating both business and IT strategy sessions.


Offshore Due Diligence

The offshore outsourcing specialists on Cutter Consortium's team are prepared to lead trips to India, Poland, or other countries, for client companies that are investigating offshore opportunities.


Optimization Review

Tim Lister

The Optimization Review, typically two days, is designed to identify the most promising opportunities for change by identifying what separates a company from the norm. This unique approach, developed by Tom DeMarco and Tim Lister, is designed to finesse change resistance, and has proven repeatedly to be both a tremendous morale-builder and an extremely effective change mechanism.


Litigation Support for Software Intensive Projects

Tim Lister

Let Cutter help you with vetting potential partners, understanding and quantifying schedules, requirements, specs, and risk management before signing contracts, to successfully prosecuting or defending against an IT-related lawsuit.
